victory. >> i bet they can hear this cheering all the way in washington, d.c.! ( applause ) >> ifill: brown's definitive victory over state attorney general martha coakley left senate democrats with 59 votes. that's one short of the super- majority the party's used to get key bills passed. and it instantly raised questions about the fate of health care reform legislation. brown campaigned against the democratic health care bills. he argued they would pose an unfair burden on massachusetts, which already has its own health care system. this morning, the senator-elect said what he opposes is washington's approach to health care. >> i think it's important for everyone to get some sort form of health care. so, to offer a basic plan for everybody, i think, is important. it's just a question of whether we're going to raise taxes, we're going to cut half a trillion from medicare, affect veterans' care. i think we can do it better. >> ifill: republicans declared voters sent a clear message in yesterday-- that democrats need to slow down. >> i'm convinced now that no gamesmanship will be play

"the only way to solve our long-term fiscal challenges is to solve it together, democrats and republicans." >>> witnesses say they saw a ball of fire in the sky before a small plane crashed into a home in sugar grove, illinois. that's about 35 miles west of chicago. the two men on the plane were killed. other witnesses said it sounded like the plane was having engine problems yesterday before it went down. the ntsb said it was broken into several pieces. the men
